The Australian & New Zealand Grapegrower & Winemaker

September 2016 »»» subscribe

The September 2016 issue of the Grapegrower & Winemaker magazine is out now - and is available online for all subscribers.

This month we look at recent and emerging technologies to optimise yield, quality and production efficiency in vineyards. Tony Proffitt from AHA Viticulture and Precision Viticulture Australia was invited to give a presentation at the International Cool Climate Wine Symposium held in the UK and has compiled some of the most important new technologies shared between delegates.

We also take a deeper look into the 2016 vintage report, as released by Wine Australia, the Winemakers' Federation of Australia and Wine Grape Growers Australia at the 16th Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference. Wine Grape Growers Australia executive director Andrew Weeks investigates and finds some clear and simple overall messages.

Ten years ago the first ever Tweet was sent; now in the wake of 16th Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference in Sydney Paul Smart asks, did the #16AWITC just kill Twitter?

We also investigate the state of the market and industry prices heavily in the September issue, along with the newest information on robotics and drones.

Grapegrower & Winemaker also chat to young gun winemaker Chris Molineaux about working hard all day and pertying all night and how he managed to impress one of Australia's most esteemed winemaking families.

Wine & Viticulture Journal

July/August »»» subscribe

A highlight of the July-August issue of the Wine & Viticulture Journal is our coverage of the recent International Cool Climate Wine Symposium. The Journal was a trade sponsor of this year's event, and was represented by Richard Smart and Peter Hayes, who not only made presentations during the symposium, but have shared with us their highlights of the program.

Immediately following Richard and Peter's ICCWS overviews is the third and final instalment of Tony Keys indepth look at the US market. In this article, Tony turns his attention to the future opportunities and challenges in this market for the Australian wine sector.

Another highlight of this issue is Cathy Howard's look at trends in the use of sulfur in the Australian wine industry. Some reader may have completed the online survey Cathy ran as part of her article.

Are you familiar with all the known viticultural influences that affect grape tannin accumulation in red wines? Rachel Kilmister presents them in her article which is drawn from some of the research undertaken by a team from Victoria's Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources which has been looking at anthocyanins and tannins for the past decade.
